Some fun things to do besides beach with older teens?

We will be visiting and staying with grandparents during the Holiday season for a few days in Ft. Myers at their retirement community. I think I'd like to go to Sanibel one afternoon as I've never been there. But, what fun restaurants, stores, other things to do with teen boys. Like like to do that stuff, too. Don't want to be stuck inside grandma's house all the time...they will go crazy.

Here are some suggestions:

Smugglers Cove mini golf (they have alligators you can feed)

The Jet Boat at Salty Sams

Stand Up Paddleboarding (rentals are available everywhere)

Sky Zone- new indoor trampoline/sports facility - trampoline dodgeball is popular with the teens

Day cruise to Cayo Costa or Cabbage Key

Walk around Time Square in Ft Myers Beach in the evening (shops, restaurants)

Sun n Fun Lagoon in North Naples- (water park open over Christmas break)

Kayaking

You can check the River District calendar to see if they will be in town for Art Walk, Music Walk (really cool!), or other events happening downtown.

I'm sorry I haven't gotten back...other trips and life just got in the way. We leave next weekend, so I came back to see if there were any suggestions, so I thank you! I will definitely be looking at some of these..the river district looks interested (for me!)
